This is definitely an excellent point. I found that even talking about my partner's new partner added to my feelings of jealously/envy. This is a conundrum I experience often. We were best friends before starting to date. We used to tell each other everything! That has changed, but it's ok. It is a natural evolution of a relationship. But, certainly something we've taken notice of.
